Thank you so much! that was a 4 day old braid out that i bunned after 2 days. i took these pics a couple of hours before i washed my hair, looks fluffy but felt icky.
As for mid-day halo frizz, i've had that happen to me and it's usually when i used a light hold gel like kiss my face upper management gel or aloe vera gel. a couple of weeks ago i was using my kinky curly curling custard to do my buns. it kept the hairs tucked in the bun super moisturized and the parts exposed to air when dry, had a strong enough hold to keep the frizzies at bay. Most recently though i've been using miss jessies curly pudding to smooth down my edges and the baby buttercream on the remainder of my hair since i dont mind the messy bun look.
